Starting with a small film camera and a high school dark room at the age of fifteen, my love of capturing connection began at a young age. I'm now in my thirties with a partner, daughter, two cats and a Chiweenie named Lucy. We live in Northern British Columbia where we spend our winters inside and summers outdoors.

When it comes to my professional life: I aim for a personable and laidback approach. Storytelling is a huge part of my process and success which is why sessions are meant to be carefree, fun but most importantly - memorable. Capturing the messy and beautiful moments between loved ones is why I do what I do.

My mission is to offer clients not just tangible memories but a complete experience. One that is human, interactive, committed, refreshing, stress-free and authentic.

“Derian is an absolute blast to work with. I’ve never met anyone who can hold onto professionalism so well while simultaneously being incredibly down to earth and hilarious. The photos I got back from our session were breathtaking as well!”
